JASPER, Ala. (WIAT) – A longtime Jasper entertainment site is closing after thirty years of business.

The closure of the Cobb Movies 4 theater will leave Jasper without a movie theater in the city.

The theater is closing its doors for good on Sept. 2.

The company says its lease is expiring and it didn’t make sense financially to renew its contract.

Residents say closing the movie theather means trekking to Birmingham or Cullman to see a film in the future.

Cobb’s corporate headquarters are located in Birmingham, but its only theaters in the state are in Jasper, Tuscaloosa and Gulf Shores.
